The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house; it’s where you relax after a long day, it’s where you sleep and recuperate and prepare for the next day. Poor quality sleep can affect mental and physical health and quality of life. This is why having a room that is nicely decorated and comfortable is essential in unlocking a healthy sleeping routine.
The bed is the most fundamental part of any bedroom, after all, we spend a third of our lives sleeping. Having a good night’s sleep has proven to increase overall happiness and yet, most people overlook the need for a high-quality bed.
Practical doesn’t mean you need to lose out on a luxury style. A divan bed is a much better choice for rooms that are limited on space, as they offer additional storage space. It’s worth considering looking at the products available from a specialist in this type of bed – Divan Beds Centre are a great choice with a wide range of beds that will last years and years.
For that touch of luxury, add a headboard to your bed; it will add more drama and be a focal point to build on other colours and textures in the whole room.
Lighting is the next important aspect to focus on in the bedroom. Consider the scale of the main light in the room; don’t go for a large chandelier for example in a small low-ceiling room.
It’s recommended that you feature three sources of light in each room. Try a statement shade for the general light, a table lamp for a specific area and a range of candles to create ambient light. Install a dimmer that allows you to set the light level depending on the mood.
Most people tend to stick to neutral colours on their walls in the main parts of the home, choosing to accessorise with bright colours instead. In the bedroom, consider featuring bold colours on the walls to liven up the space.
Teal hues with gold accessories are a luxurious option, as well as elegant floral prints with simple decorations or how about neutral tones with wood? The bedroom is the perfect place to experiment with your favourite colours and trends; it’s your personal space.
Layering is an easy and affordable way to add luxury to your bedroom. Add a range of scatter cushions (apparently, three is the magic number) in a selection of different colours and textures to the bed and any chairs in the room. At the end of the bed, add a throw or runner in a contrasting colour to the bedsheet.
The finishing touches
In any room, it’s all in the details. As well as being great for checking your appearance, a mirror in the bedroom is a clever and cost-effective way of making the room appear bigger and can also make it brighter.
Using a range of accessories can also add character to a room; family photos, art and plants will add life to the area and a rug in a bold colour or design will fill the empty space on the floor.
